Welcome to Pear Class.
Our teacher is Mrs Adams and our teaching assistant is Miss Higham
Here in Pear class we are always ready to learn and try our best. We build on the knowledge and skills you have learnt in Year 1 and encourage independence through the use of equipment in class. We celebrate a growth mindset by children ‘having a go’ at tasks they find challenging and not being worried about making mistakes.
Pear Class Themes - Here is an example of some of the learning taking place this year.
Our World – We will be locating the world’s seven continents and five oceans in geography, looking at how toys have changed in history and developing our colour mixing in art and design.
Nature around us – We will be focusing on natures sculptures in art and design, learning some key gymnastics skills in PE and creating seasonal salads in design and technology.
Technology in my life – We will be creating computer art in our computing sessions each week, in science we will be looking at animals including humans and researching why Tim Berners-Lee is significant in history.
Break time snacks
Toast and milk are available at break time payable via SCOpay. Children will receive a piece of fruit each day at break time.
Our PE days are Wednesday and Thursday.
On PE days, children should attend school wearing their PE kit consisting of plain black or grey shorts, joggers or leggings, plain white t-shirt, school jumper and trainers.
Weekly homework will be set on Fridays and should be completed by the following Wednesday.
Weekly spellings will be sent home on a Monday for your child to learn. Spelling tests will then take place the following Monday.
Read 4 the Stars
We ask children to read four times a week and have their reading diary signed each time they read. Each week children who have got a reading star will be in with a chance of winning the Read 4 the Stars bag which contains: hot chocolate, biscuits, a book and a cuddly toy to take home for the weekend.
